Godless congregations?

There’s an encouraging article just published by the Associated Press about Greg Epstein, a Humanist chaplain at Harvard, and his efforts to create “godless congregations” that replicate the community experience of churches but within a humanist context.

This sort of thing is actually already being done, and has been done for the last ten years or so, by the Atlanta-based Fellowship of Reason (FOR), which describes itself as a “rational moral community.”  (In the interest of full disclosure, I am a dues-paying member of FOR, formerly a Trustee and even President for a year.)
